Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Excellent! It works in Linux!
Thanks to Darkoshi for the instructions. After creating the xml file in the chrome directory (which may have to be created as well), RESTART the browser.
Gemal's homepage is excellent. That is very important for a good addon - plenty of documentation.
A further improvement would be if one could also submit the url of the current page to launchy as well. But I am already very satisfied with it as it is :)
